West Monroe man accused of kidnapping wife, forcing her to buy crack

WEST MONROE (AP) — A 39-year-old West Monroe man has been arrested for allegedly kidnapping his wife and forcing her to buy crack cocaine.

The News-Star reported Marvin Christopher Jenkins was booked with battery-domestic violence abuse, simple kidnapping, possession of cocaine and obstruction of justice.

The arrest report states that Jenkins hit his wife and forced her into his vehicle. He then drove her to an unknown location and forced her to buy $40 worth of crack cocaine.

Police arrested Jenkins Sunday at his home and found two large rocks of suspected crack cocaine.

It was unclear whether Jenkins has an attorney.
